Peres is a device that is being called an "e-nose" and if you find yourself especially prone to food poisioning, it might just be a useful tool to have on hand, since Peres is like a digital food sniffer and it will tell you if a food item has passed its prime.

The electronic nose-like device is capable of scanning meats like beef, chicken, pork and fish, and will give you information on the freshness, health hazards and the risk of food poisoning that might come with eating the meat.

Peres is currently crowdfunding on Indiegogo and for $120, early supporters will receive one of these devices of their very own. Since the World Health Organization states that over 200 diseases are spread through food, a quick scan with Peres really can't hurt.
